Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."


Leavitt saw an Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush in the store that he thought was accidentally priced for a penny. However, it was clearly marked "DISPLAY" but Leavitt either didn't notice or he was trying to pull a fast one.

Leavitt demanded that the store sell him the tooth brush for a penny, but Tori stood her ground and refused to do so. So, Leavitt posted an unflattering photo of her on Twitter, where he has 210,000 followers.

"This manager Tori is not honoring the price of their items per massachusetts law," he wrote.

He then went on a rant about how Target was violating Massachusetts law and that he called the police to investigate the situation.

The tweet soon went viral with countless people chastising Leavitt for sharing her photo online and for being a total unreasonable dick to a Target employee.

The tweet also struck a nerve with people who have worked retail and have had to put up with the "let me talk to your manager" types who throw embarrassing tantrums in the store to save a few bucks.

The story soon went viral and Twitter user Carpe Donktum started a GoFundMe page to help send Tori on a much needed vacation. Over just 2 days, the campaign raised over $30,000.

Target responded by making an official Twitter profile for Tori where she gave a heartfelt thank you. "I want to say thank you to everyone for their kindness and let you know that I intend to pay this forward," the Twitter bio reads. "I'll keep you updated!"

She also shared her thoughts on the page.

Leavitt had a smug response.

The Target Tori saga is a fantastic example of the power of social media when it's used for good as well as evil. Leavitt attempted to use his social media power to humiliate Tori and it backfired royally.

He also learned a thing or two about Massachusetts pricing laws.
